Here is your topic: Top Five Favorite Animal Species With Which You've Interacted. Go!
Note: Interaction doesn't necessarily have to mean physical touch. Having a buffalo approach your car window at Yellowstone, for example, also counts.
Please feel welcome to share stories about why your Top Five picks are what they are, though a straight-up list is fine, too. Please refrain from negatively auditing other people's lists, because judgment discourages participation.
